A woman first thought to have been shot at an American Legion post was actually struck by a bullet fired by her boyfriend — now wanted by police — as he drove her away from the night spot.
The woman, shot in the left leg around 3:30 a.m. Sunday, initially told police she was hit as she stood outside American Legion Post No. 267, 4027 Cusseta Road, Lt. Steve Cox said. However, Cox said that Wednesday night she told officers the truth.
The 25-year-old was first at Glory Days Bar & Grill, 3846 St. Marys Road, before she went to the Legion post. That's where Antovious Pitts, her 27-year-old boyfriend, found her, Cox said.
Pitts took her from the post, put her into his car and drove off, the lieutenant said. At some point while driving away, he shot her.
Never miss a local story.
Pitts is wanted on charges of aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
